‘Ate Vi’: No ambition to run for VP
Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto has finally ended speculations she is running for vice president in the 2016 elections.
The-actress-turned politician, in an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal, confirmed she is not running for vice president, not even as running mate of Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Mar Roxas.
“Ano lang ‘yan, publicity. Publicity lang ‘yan. Mga puro hearsay…Hindi ko kinu-consider ‘yon,” Santos-Recto was quoted as saying.
She said she would rather run for a seat in Congress.
Santos-Recto pointed out that the vice presidential post is not an easy job.
“Yung governor, sakripisyo na, how much more kung pag-uusapan natin na hindi biro, e?
I will not consider ‘yung sasabihin mo na may pakiusap. Hindi, e, kasi alam ko ‘yung kakayanan ko,” she stressed.
“Wala akong ambisyon, no plans, and I’m not interested because wala sa plano ko,” she added.
